Course Description

A short disclaimer at the beginning: This is a reading-intensive course. Really, it is. We will read, analyse, interpret and discuss a variety of contemporary novels which can/must/might be called young adult fiction.

Spanning multiple topics within young adult fiction (romance, fantasy, death, LGBTQI, etc.), this course aims to apply various theories to explain both the texts as well as the (marketable) phenomenon. Moreover, we will discuss novels from different countries to find out whether some issues are universal.

Please be aware that this course can be taken in combination with Teaching Teenage and Young Adult Fiction (154322).

Please note: This course starts in the second week of the semester, October 19 and because some November sessions will not take place, there will be an additional longer session on Saturday, December 16, 2017 from 10 – 14.
